WFRP4E Campaign

The End Times - Forum
Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay

Good Afternoon Weavers,

I am looking for five players who wish to delve into the system and lore of Crucible Seven's Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 4E, to embark upon a long tail of adventure a little more heroic than one might expect from a setting which has often been referred to as "Grimdark", mildly influenced by Total War: Warhammer and the Vermintide series of games which I have spent far too much time playing post Christmas. I'm going to be using a combination of pre-published adventures - starting the game off If Looks Could Kill - with some of my own ideas thrown in here and there to try and weave this into a campaign that could last quite a while with any luck!

Please, take a look in the game forum (linked at the top) and ask any questions in the character creation thread!

Game Description:

Prepare to enter a grim world of bitter heroes and perilous struggles. Listen to lost and damned souls scream in anguished terror as Chaos infects all like a malignant disease from which there is no cure. Watch as the earth, the air, the seas become so suffused with tortuous magics that the very fabric of reality twists, warps, and is irrevocably changed. Come feel cruel loss as bygone sorceries that once kept the world safe are shattered, and the ancient chains they preserved crack under the strain of negligence. And now taste terror as the Ruinous Powers stir in the bowels of their daemonic hells, sensing, finally, that the end is nigh, that the time to feast, to revel, and to slay has come. That the Age of Chaos has begun.

Look now to the Reikland, the mightiest realm of the Empire. It is a land at war, its Noble Houses vying for power and influence as their armies struggle to stem the tide of invading warlords, rampaging Greenskins, mutant Beastmen, and the monstrous creatures that haunt the wild places. Even in at its heart, in its capital of Altdorf, violence rules. There, thieves, street rats, and smugglers slit throats for pennies, mirroring the deeds of their betters on the world stage. For the tide of corruption rises in the hearts of all, filthy and stained, driving even the strong to pursue forbidden lore and profane arts, to sacrifice their brothers and sisters on the altar of their own folly.

Damnation is not a heartbeat away, it has already come.

Yet, amidst this never-ending torrent of misery and desperation, there are those who would stand tall. There are those who dare face the End Times and deny the inevitable entropy. They may not be good, they not be noble, they may not be kind, but they are the only heroes this damned world has. And by their grit, their tenacity, and their sheer bloody-minded determination, the fate of the world is decided. Damnation or salvation? Soon, all will know.

This is a world of unsung heroes and fleeting glory.

This is the world of Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay.


This is a Fourth Edition Warhammer Fantasy Roleplaying campaign set to introduce players to the world of Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay, take them on a tour of Ubersreik and provide them with ties to a (somewhat) powerful benefactor moving forward!

Just received my hard backed copy in the mail last week!

I'd certainly be down for rolling up a character and seeing where the Old World takes me.

Still waiting for my hardback Starters Set but loving the hardback core book, going on my bookshelf as I have the PDF copy they keep updating hehe.

As in errata? Oh boy. My beloved sourcebook is less than pristine.

Have the pdf myself but call me old school. Love the feeling of a hard back and looking things up that way.

Yeah, there is an errata already! Here's a link to their website, you can download a PDF of the errata there

I'm new to the system for the most part (I've got about half a game in 2nd ed under my belt) but if you're willing to put up with me I'm willing to give it a go. I've got a character concept I've kind of got my heart set on, but I'd like to ask if it's kosher before I invest in it. Basic idea is a green Dark Elf corsair who got left behind on the shores of the Empire after a raid and has been doing their best to just survive since. Not really evil, just kind of a selfish asshole, who's mostly coasting on the fact that most folks in the Empire aren't really clear on the whole 'High/Dark/Wood' divide and so there's at least a 33% chance they won't be run out of town by a mob. Ultimately motivated by profit and the fact that if they can convince the humans that they're some sort of hero the chances of being burnt at the stake decrease remarkably.

speaking as another prospective player...4e has seen fit to separate the elves into distinct races w/ different favored skills and talents (as they probably should be) and there currently are no rules for Dark Elf yet. you got a cool idea though IMO.

Man I havent touched the WH RPG since 2nd edition with my halfling rat catcher who had the misfortune of stumbling onto a brace of warp stone pistols...things did not end well for that little idiot.

I do not have the 4e edition rules though...
